What will happen next to a historic Gravesend home that George Washington visited just after the end of the Revolutionary War?
Charles M. Ryder House at 32 Village Road North was sold this year along with the building next door, 30 Village Road North, city Finance Department records indicate.
The Dutch Colonial home at 32 Village Road North was reportedly built around 1788 — the year the U.S. Constitution was adopted at the end of the Revolutionary War. It was used as a school in 1789 when Washington made his appearance, according to the website Forgotten New York.
The historic home is not a city landmark, though.
In April, Yosif Mamrout paid Frank Traina $875,000 for Charles M. Ryder House and $350,000 for 30 Village Road North, Finance Department records show.
Mamrout is an executive at American Exchange Time, located in Manhattan's Garment District. The company is a manufacturer and wholesaler of watches for big-name retailers.
He didn't respond to Eye on Real Estate's request for comment.
